Chuwariwap Girls Dinner

J celebrated her birthday last night at Basix and just for fun's sake, we dressed up in 1920's inspired fashion. We had so much fun especially when C arrived in Cinderella-fashion (sans Prince Charming) and J regaled us with Shades of Grey tales. I admit I haven't read the book yet but I just might give it a try. Hahaha

My first stop was at the cheese table. Yum! Then I paired it with some dinner rolls. Can't help myself but go back for a second round, sans bread.



Cold cuts and seafood selection and salad bar.




Dessert Table. I love the chocolate fountain. Had three pieces of marshmallows coated with chocolate. Yum!



Shrimps in Garlic and Butter Sauce and Baked Mussels. So good! Nice if paired with wine, though. We drank liters of green tea. Hahaha



Roast Beef, Potato Gratin, Pita and Hummus and Veggies. My medium-well roast beef is perfect with the potatoes. I wish I had eaten more roast beef.



Mango Ice Cream.  Something's not really mango-ey with the ice-cream. It lacks the flavor that I'm craving for. But the cheese and dried fruit makes up for it. Especially the cheese! ;)

RECIPE: TKG's Pan-Grilled Maya-Maya With Calamansi Butter Sauce

I chanced upon some fresh-looking Maya-Maya being sold near my daughter's school today so I bought some. I don't really have a dish in mind when I bought it. Maybe fried, sinigang ... And upon checking the fridge and pantry (no more olive oil), I decided to marinate the fish in calamansi to remove the fishy taste. I pan-grilled the fish being careful not to burn it. Then I minced some garlic, cooked it in butter, added some salt and poured the sauce on top of the fish. And its ready to eat. And oh, I also steamed some cauliflower as a side-dish. Bon appetit!

Boracay's Hidden Gem: Mama's Fish House

I've always wanted to dine at Mama's Fish House in Boracay but wasn't able to for some forgotten reasons already. Then the pandemic happened and we're in lockdown or limited travel movement for almost two years. And guess what? One of the nicest thing to happen on our recent trip to Boracay was to discover that Mama's Fish House was located just outside the beach front of our hotel- Microtel by Wyndham Boracay . Talk about serendipity!
